CALIFORNIA–(ENEWSPF)–October 10, 2016. Entertainment Tonight journalist Nancy O’Dell issued a statement over the weekend about comments made about her in the leaked 2005 recorded conversation between Donald Trump and Billy Bush. Bush was O’dell’s collegue on Access Hollywood at that time. In its Friday broadcast, the show identified her as the Nancy that Trump said he’d attempted to sleep with in the recording.
“Politics aside, I’m saddened that these comments still exist in our society at all,” she wrote. “When I heard the comments yesterday, it was disappointing to hear such objectification of women. The conversation needs to change because no female, no person, should be the subject of such crass comments, whether or not cameras are rolling. Everyone deserves respect no matter the setting or gender. As a woman who has worked very hard to establish her career, and as a mom, I feel I must speak out with the hope that as a society we will always strive to be better.”
